Lovely and a very quiet coastal village. I 've expected more visitors at this time of the year. In less than 2 hours walked around, checked couple art galleries and gift shops. Local ice-cream on the promenade is absolutely fantastic. Try the honeycomb cone 🤤

We took a lovely little stroll around Appledore. The estuary provided a dramatic backdrop. There are a few shops, tearooms and a lovely delicatessen to visit.

Hot, sunny day walking beside turquoise sea with bright blue sky. Appledore today (Friday) is buzzing with boat trips, yachts, RNLI boat tour and children catching fish and crabs off the quay wall.
